A scarce old survivor that I bought from an Estate family collection, handed down over the generations. Formed nearly all in the 19th Century it seems clear.
Mostly stuck in, as was the normal fashion then, and amazingly, everything in here is a GENUINE stamp pretty much. Many collections of the time were filled with Fournier or Spiro type rough fakes to fill up the spaces. NOT this one.
Condition all over the place, as always on these ancient lots, with not great stamps to start with in some cases, and some aging creeping in. A hot water "bath" for the patient salvage merchant will reward handsomely I'd guess, as many sound stamps here - and those are often items of high cat.
The SG catalogue values in pencil were done 4 or 5 years ago, and it then got buried in the rubble here in this junkyard. Some badly damaged hi-cat not counted at all in SG figure.
Back then they were cat £16,000, and in the ensuing 5 years that is more likely 10% or so higher, but after 1am Sunday here, and I am not spending hours doing it all again!
Some pretty nice pieces here - I saw an attractive Victoria 1d “Half Length” imperf, also the 2d and 3d Half Lengths as well are here, and other Vic imperfs, and other handy things of that ilk, that are all $50-$75 or so stamps on their own. A well-worn relic of another era, showing its age. The same can be said of the $US10 million, 1856 1c British Guiana of course!
Only a VERY few pages and items shown - excuse the lighting, but at after 1am Sunday, never perfect, and too tired to do more. AND I posted up some twice but too pooped to sort out what ones. Cat SG will be about £17,500 now - MUST be worth under 2.5% of SG to SOMEONE??! Even to keep intact, as a cool relic of a bygone era? Or to add to etc.
Do you know ANYONE who owns a 144 year old stamp album?

to offset that against this item - see
As most know - I do NO fairs or shows, have NO shop, and do NOT bother with ebay or other auctions. I buy endless bulk lots from Estates, and distress sales etc, in this massive city of 6 million with no other real stamp
buyers, and offer it here at NETT prices for fast turnover. NO "20% Buyer Fees" to add to my prices, as in auction!
Many similar mouth-watering NETT price offers are being loaded weekly onto -
All stampboards lots $A200 and under are mailed Unregistered.
If Reg'd is required, STATE that on order form - cost is extra $A4 local, and minimum $A15 extra foreign. Only YOU know if your street address is secure - a large packet covered in pretty stamps left outside,
just might tempt passers-by? PO Boxes are far safer.
'All risk' Insurance is always possible if required, at $A2 per $100 covered - again it must be specified on order form.
As per stampboard convention - this lot is offered exclusively first to board members - and on no other sales venue.
For members who make a BANK TRANSFER payment you WILL generally get your goods faster, as it saves me some hassle - but you MUST email me the confirmation number etc - many "forget"!
